Site Description:The Kitzsteinhorn is a 3.203 m high mountain peak in Central Austria. The research project MOREXPERT (“Monitoring Expert System for Hazardous Rock Walls”) has established a new long-term monitoring site focusing on permafrost and rockfall interaction in the summit region of the Kitzsteinhorn. A total number of five boreholes have been drilled into permafrost-affected bedrock (calcareous mica-schist).
